05/14/20 - Why The Lawsuit To Get Financial Aid To Farmers?
Host and American Family Farmer, Doug Stephan www.eastleighfarm.com begins with Agri News that finds The House and Senate suing the SBA in order to get financial aid to Farmers? Next, Doug introduces us to Tracy Hayhurst, who is Farm Manager and Seed & Spoon Director at Husky Meadows Farms. www.huskymeadowsfarm.com She is developing Seed and Spoon, a culinary retreat program based on the 2-acre farm. Tracy is inspired by other farmers’ ingenuity and by chefs who can coax sublime flavors out of raw ingredients. Tracy believes that farming and cooking are sensory experiences. The feel of the soil on her hands. The scents that each plant releases. And then the flavors that could be created in the kitchen. Finally, Doug opines about the difficulty farmers are having dealing with COVID19 and suggests that farms should apply for the aid now and he doesn't want to see any of the money going to big corporate farms.
